To be fair, we said that we might try it again after the owner took over in the kitchen. So we did. The salsa has gotten better, but everything else was still a bust. The snapper was still bland and not spicy, the chimchanga's can no longer be ordered fuego style, they instead put queso on top. Not a good mix for a chimi. We had ordered fish and chips and they said they were out of tartar sauce, and had been for some time. How do you have fish and chips and not have tartar sauce on hand? The fish was really dry. The server was nice, but the food quality is not very good anymore. It makes us really sad, but our favorite place that we have come to for so long, is no longer the place for us. We will unfortunately not be back, but will instead find a local place to call home.
We have been coming to Fuego regularly for quite some time and always loved the food and atmosphere. Usually the service is fair, but the atmosphere and food made up for it. We recently went again and it has changed. The Fuego Snapper was bland and not spicy at all. The fuego sauce was more like melted Velveeta on the other dishes. The salsa is no longer spicy and lacked flavor. The drinks were more watered down than usual. We asked our server about the change and were informed that the previous cook walked out and the owner is preparing everything himself. While we appreciate having a hands on approach to any business, this is one time that it may not be what is best. We were disappointed with the food and don't want to lose our favorite place. Please go back to the previous recipes. They were much better. We will try one more time. Hopefully it will be worth it adn we won't have to look for a new place to take our family and friends.
Took out-of-town guest for lunch on Saturday, and went early to get a table on the deck overlooking the ocean. Seats were warped. Service was slow, and we had to ask other servers to find our waitress. The Kush nachos were dry and only had 4 slices of jalapenos. It took another 15 minutes to get more of them. The mahi mahi fish tacos were very good. The other meal was O.K. It took 10 minutes for our busboy to locate our server so that we could order another round of drinks. When it was time to pay the check, we had to ask another server to find our check. With good service and that wonderful view, we could overlook average food. Unfortunately we did not have very good service. We'll wait another 6 months and try again.
